Product description

Using a history of science methodology, this title expands upon the foundational work of archaeoastronomers. It follows three lines of investigation: a reading of the hieroglyphic inscriptions of the Classic period (AD 250-900), mathematical analysis to recover Classic Maya astronomical practice, and a historiography of Maya astronomy.
